    she's hanging now IMG_5044.JPG IMG_5048.JPG
    I think timber or rapidled will give as good or better results at a cheaper price the Johnson performance is good I just think there is better options out there

    Had a quick look into the leds you mentioned. Ill be hard set finding a supplier in Ireland and our import duty is crazy so getting it shipped over won't be worth the cost. Maybe I will build a little one :)

    Looking forward to the smoke report 8-)

    I didn't think about your location are kits exempt from the tax?

    From experience anything over €100 would get taxed at 23%. Sometimes I can get stuff through without the tax but id say those lights would be caught up. The kits would be the same yeah, although if I purchased the COBs and drivers on their own from china I should be ok with the import duty. Im handy with electrics but id have to source the frame. Id have hotspots all over the place if I tried to weld a frame together lol

    aluminum angle & screws & nuts or pop-rivets will work if you're gonna use passive heatsinks some people are buying Chinese cob lights & swapping the chips out for good ones , using the drivers , fans , heatsinks etc. from the Chinese light , the anjeet from amazon has video's on YouTube how it is done

    Good thinking, the cost of those lights with import could be cheaper than making up a bracket itself. I must have a look into what the latest COBs everyones running now. I had some priced last year at about €50 each inc shipping.

    I have a MarsHydro II 1200w here. Got it two years ago and ran it once start to finish. I had massive growth in veg but the buds just didn't come through in flower. Maybe it was something I done but I couldn't pull a decent yield and I didn't like the colour, way to purple for me. I like the look of your light though and those are some pretty dense buds

    One tip I found handy with the tents. Get some candle wax or zipper wax for scuba diving suits and run it along the zips. You won’t know yourself after :blsmoke: mine tend to get a bit stiff after a while with the high humidity in veg. Little bit of wax does the trick
